    I guess you could make the reservations if you felt the need to make sure you didn't have to wait. Perhaps if your party is large. For a popular place like Maisen, be prepared to wait at mealtimes, although it moves pretty quickly and the place is pretty large.

      I've never needed one, but then I've never spent more than JPY1500 on a tonkatsu lunch.

        There are thousands of tonkatsu restaurants in Japan. Could you narrow it down a bit? Or do you think all tonkatsu places would have the same rules?
